The Marvel Cinematic Universe is not ready for Carol Danvers.
Originally tipped for an appearance in Avengers: Infinity War – word is the Russo Brothers filmed scenes involving Brie Larson’s heroine, only to shelve them at the 11th hour – Miss. Danvers is now expected to make her MCU debut next March, when the long-anticipated Captain Marvel solo movie takes flight.
Touting a who’s who of Hollywood talent and a deeply nostalgic 1990s setting, Marvel’s first female-led blockbuster has all the makings of a special, ground-breaking expansion of the MCU, and as it continues to head through production, more and more set photos emerge onto the web.
The latest batch come to us from Hollywood Pipeline and though you’ll have to head on over to their site to check them out, they do provide an exciting new look at the upcoming pic. Though there’s nothing terribly revealing, we see Larson decked out in that much discussed green suit and seemingly racing into action, along with a few shots of her taking a breather in between takes.
As if all that isn’t enough to whet your appetite, it appears that Captain Marvel is coming together “extremely well,” too, after Kevin Feige took a moment to recognize the stellar cast and crew that’s bringing the 2019 solo flick to life.
You’re going to get the most powerful superhero we’ve ever introduced and what I think is one of the most unique and inspiring origin stories. We are a little less than halfway through filming now. It’s going extremely well, and it’s a great cast on that film.
With a ’90s setting on the cards and a pretty sizeable role for the young, post-Cold War Nick Fury, Captain Marvel will take to the skies on March 8th, 2019.
